Notes/Commercial Description:
UFO Hefeweizen is an American unfiltered wheat beer. Perhaps UFO’s initial sensory perception is also its most prominent: a cloudy golden color and a dense, frothy head. The yeast, which has not been filtered out, accounts for the cloudiness of UFO. Wheat malt tends to create a larger head than barley malt, the cereal grain most often used in brewing. When served in a traditional wheat beer glass with a lemon, UFO presents an appealing and distinctive visual image.

The aroma has a faint but clear citrus-like character. This is produced by the special yeast and accounts for the Bavarian tradition of serving hefeweizens with a lemon. The lemon accentuates the yeast’s fruity, tart fragrance. UFO has a soft mouthfeel and a refreshing, light body. The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor. UFO has a clean finish. Unlike some imported hefeweizens, UFO does not have the spicy, tropical flavors typical of European-brewed style.

05/16/12 On tap. Seconding my last appraisal. It's 20F outside & I'm perfectly happy drinking this. Historically I've never been impressed w/Harpoon stuff...perhaps it's because it's not a bottle...but I may just have another.

06/12 - Rate Beer does not do this brew justice. A 26? Time for me to re-evaluate RB. It's got a fresh, clean taste with a great balance. I could drink this all day long. Lemon takes it into July/August mode.

Serving type: on-tap
